[Glade-devel] Glade and Custom widgets

No, you don't need to do that.

If your widget can calculate its own width & height exactly, it should
do that in the normal size_request/size_allocate class methods, e.g. see
gtklabel.c. You don't need to set the width/height in Glade in this

If your widget is something like a GtkTreeView, where the width & height
is set by the application, you set the Width/Height on the Common tab to
a reasonable *minimum* width/height, and then set the dialog's default
width/height properties to a reasonable default size for the entire
dialog. That way the user can resize the dialog as appropriate.

Right so my widget is like a GtkTreeView; and the problem is when I set 
a specific width/height in the
common tab in glade my widget does not recieve a size_request with the 
values from the common tab.  Perhaps,
a better question is how are the width/height values from the common tab 
propagated to the custom widget?  I
was under the impression a custom widget would recieve a size_request.  
But, when I trace my widget it does not
recieve a size_request with the values in the commn tab.  So, for now 
i've resorted to using the parameters passed
to the widget constructor, int1 and int2.

  I'm developing an application using libglade-2.4.  I'm working on a 
custom widget and am having difficulty understand how libglade handles 
custom widgets and height/width_request under the properties tab 
common.  Should my widget recieve a width_request?
